Cave Boat Tour In Kentucky

March 03, 2021

What else can I do at The Gorge Underground in Kentucky?

The Gorge Underground is the place to go for underground adventure. If you’ve already done the cave boat tour or the kayak tour, how about trying the SUP tour to change things up a bit? The Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) tour, which is given by the Gorge Underground’s partner SUP Kentucky, lasts for 1.5 hours and promises an unforgettable adventure. The tour features beautifully colored LED lights, expert guides, and photographs you can take home to commemorate your adventure. If you prefer kayaking, you can also go on a kayaking tour with a clear-bottomed kayak, so you can see the water below you.

What are some things to do in Red River Gorge?

Did you know that Red River Gorge in Kentucky is considered the state’s Grand Canyon? Yep, and you’ll find an abundance of things to do in Red River Gorge when you’re there. After taking your cave boat tour in Kentucky, consider exploring the gorge a bit further. Bring your hiking boots along, so you can check out the many trails that dot the area. Rock Bridge Loop, for example, spans 1.5 miles and leads to a gorgeous waterfall. Wildcat Trail, at just under two miles, boasts such stunning scenery as a rhododendron tunnel and rock shelters. Don’t forget to make time to visit Natural Bridge and Chimney Rock Top.

Where can I stay overnight in Red River Gorge?

With so much to do in Red River Gorge, you can try but probably can’t pack it all into one day. If you’re planning to stay for a few nights, consider checking into what just might be the most unique spot in the area – the Cliff Dweller. A cliff-mounted treehouse, the Cliff Dweller features several rooms, a floating staircase, and heat and A/C. Even better? The views, at which you can marvel from the many windows in the treehouse or from the rooftop deck. (Wait until you see the elevated bathroom, too.)
